Such a news during such a difficult time for us. To me, Stan was a great example of serving, an  example of love, an example of wisdom and humbleness before God. This is a great loss for his family, his friends and coworkers. But for Stan this is a ‘meeting with the FATHER and a life everlasting without pain, tears or problems. I anticipate that together we will one day praise our God in His Heavenly home!  Condolences and the comfort from our LORD – to all the family. Stan shall always remain in my  memory in gratefulness for all his good works. Thank God for Stan!!!!!

My heartfelt condolences to your family for the loss of this wonderful man. Stan will be remembered dearly for the great impact he had on my life. He gave me the opportunity to go to Ukraine, where I met my husband and like a father he gave me away at our wedding. He was always so giving and very wise, and loved the Lord with all of his heart. He was always such a humble servant of God.
I’m happy for him that he is now free and with his beloved Jesus. The legacy Stan has left, will be felt for all eternity. We will miss him greatly.❤️

Greetings to all. Today Stan Watrich passed into eternity. He loved God and the people of Ukraine.
Thank God for him (his life). Pray for his family.

On behalf of myself and thousands of Ukrainians, I thank God and family dear Stan Watrich for his life, service to God, sacrifice, dedication, love and loyalty to the people of Ukraine!!! Stan did it correctly, honestly and consistently! His heart and soul ached for the fate of this nation. He looked for ways and found how to help people and serve Ukrainians for their knowledge of God !!! Sten did help not for his name. Despite his illness, at risk, he constantly flew to Ukraine to find problems and find solutions! He stayed deep in my heart as a man of selfless, faithful to God, unbreakable vision. I always remember his first congratulations when He called. When the war broke out, Stan was the first to call and ask: what can I help? ... It's a pity that He left us. Please accept our sincere condolences dear Watrich family.... Meet me at the Lord Stan!...   Bogdan Mudriyevskyy
